Discovery for Children’s Choirs
To make music, we need the eye to decode, the voice to sound, memory to anticipate, and the ear to verify. But to take things one step further, we combine these with our human emotions. When well-managed, an increased emphasis on the emotional aspect of the choral experience can increase expressivity, solve technical problems, and enhance the sense of ensemble. Through a series of role-play and empathy exercises, participants will be encouraged to explore the possibilities of their ‘hidden voice’.
